The degree apprenticeship combines real-world and academic experience, with the additional benefits of earning a competitive salary while learning, and no university tuition fees.

Developing young talent is crucial to the future of our business and having diversity in our people at this stage of their career is pivotal,\” said Carrie Barber, talent and people capability director at JLR.

The four-year programme will allow JLR to train and develop potential engineers, preparing them for a future in product design, development or manufacturing.

The engineering apprenticeship scheme follows the introduction of the Digital and Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeship in 2018, designed to build JLR\’s capability and skills needed to develop and deliver future mobility technologies.

In the past three years, Jaguar Land Rover has recruited almost 2,200 young people to its apprentice, undergraduate and graduate programmes.
